Cupcake Flower Bouquet

Ottensessor-051013-Bouquet

While all the flowers that grace your Shavuos table will surely be a delight to your eye, these will be a delight for your palette as well. Create them at any level, simple or sophisticated; any way you make them they’re sure to be a sensation.

Supplies:

Flower pot – 4” opening
4” Styrofoam ball
16 mini cupcakes
Small silk leaves
Fondant or frosting
Choice of flower plunger, flower mold or pastry bag with tip (available at baking supply stores)
Toothpicks

Directions:

1. I used rolled fondant for my bouquet; however, there are many ways to create the flower cupcakes. Here are some suggestions:

Fondant: Form flowers with a fondant plunger or mold. You can stick the flowers to the cupcake with a little icing or just by dabbing a little bit water on them.

Frosting: There are many ways to make flowers using cream. Using different tips will create different flowers from roses to hydrangeas to sunflowers…You can even tint the pastry bag with food coloring to create different shades of colors in your flowers.

2. Place the styrofoam ball into the planter. Push it in to secure.

3. Push the toothpicks into the styrofoam and then attach the cupcakes. (I put 9 cupcakes around the bottom, 6 in the middle and one in the center.

4. Fill gaps with leaves.
